Similar to 2004-2005. The deputies and respective counsel did the leg work and the two primaries did the finishing work.

BTW - are we supposed to wait for smoke coming out of the chimney? Is it white for CBA and black for better luck next meeting?

Yay!

I think this is fantastic. Get a deal done. Don't leave until you have something to vote on so we can end this already!

It's a good thing there's a time change tonight - they have an extra hour.

Yep. Pretty much.

Not willing to take the bait just yet, but I'm pretty damn optimistic right now...

Amazing how you take the two biggest egos out of the room and all of a sudden it's a relatively peaceful proceeding.

Neither side could yield much, else they appear weak. This way, Bettman and Donald keep their chiseled jaws and something moderate gets done. At least, I'm hoping that's the case. Please let this be a way out of the impasse.

So is the meeting actually over or not?

Gary and Don should just take a backseat and let their right hand men hammer some deal in secret locations.

a commissioner is someone who will say no to the owners when they are wrong. That is Bettman, not Daily.

It's not.

All we know is as of six hours ago (according to Rosen's timeline) it hadn't started, and as of now it hasn't finished.

The meeting between Bill Daly and Steve Fehr hasn't started yet, so if there is any news to come out of it will likely come tonight.

Expect status quo and hope to be surprised.

The rollercoaster of emotions is getting tiring.

I really don't want to get my hopes up after a disappointing month, but I do have a good feeling about tonight's meeting, simply based on it's length and nothing more.

Aaron ward was saying to a reporter on twitter that his sources initials is POB... Someone is getting updates from the meetings and telling some players, who are then telling some media people.
